Layla Smith is all alone. She has been in foster care for the past several years but now that she's of age, she is being sent out on her own with no money, no job and no family. Then she witnesses a murder and to keep her safe she is placed into the witness protection program. The Sheriff sends her away from Chicago to his cousin's remote Montana ranch. Cade King was not only handsome but lucky, until one day his luck ran out. An accident changes his life completely and now he's filled with anger and resentment toward his situation. His bitterness is extends to Layla but it seems to roll off her back. Cade thinks she'll pity him but Layla only shows him loving kindness which slowly begins to erode his protective armor. As they get to know each other they slowly begin to let down their guard. There is a connection between them that neither can explain. But danger is close at hand and the killer won't stop until he cleans-up his loose end.

I thoroughly enjoyed Cowboy Down. I have never read anything by this author but was pleasantly surprised to find a good, clean story that will sweep you away to a remote ranch in Montana. I can't remember reading about a hero in Cade's position but I found it very intriguing. It felt to me, that all the emotions Cade experienced rang true. I loved all the interaction between Layla and Cade. Layla was an excellent heroine. Although she had been through so much and though she tried to protect herself from hurt, she still knew how to give love. One thing that I really liked about this story was all the family interaction. The brothers are rugged and interesting to get to know and I can't wait to read the story of each of them. This tale had a nice balance of tender moments, humorous moments, serious moments and tense moments. I enjoyed my time at the King's Ranch and look forward to returning there for Cowboy Lost!

This entire series is great! If I had to choose "Cowboy Down" would probably be my favorite, but honestly it would be hard to choose. After reading the first book I thought I would try the second one, but thought there was no way I would like it as much. I was wrong! Each King brother stole my heart in one way or another, along with their wonderful wives. The stories are all sweet, romantic, exciting. I read "Cowboy Down" in one setting. I just couldn't put it down. All this praise and I have NEVER enjoyed reading contemporary fiction at all......Until now! I will forever cherish this series. I have found a new favorite author to add to my list! God Bless

Good story line, good character build up. Despite the back ground story of both main characters adjusting to their own personal situations. I found it just a little too slow building up the romantic relationship between the two. Perhaps that is the authors purpose. I was very pleased with the ending. The author leaves it open to a possible continuation of their story along with each of his brothers. Good teen read.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I could not put the book down. Case and Layla characters were well thought out. The back story was just that a back story. The love story was the main focus even when the story played out and the few misunderstandings happened.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into, although I had all 5 books. Ended up being a good series.

This is a story about perseverance, fortitude and triumph. It's also a lesson in communication. Layla is leaving the system, her reward for turning eighteen. She had to meet a known pervert but instead witnesses his murder. So she's taken to Montana for her protection. Cade is also eighteen and confined to a wheelchair. He sits in house all the time because no one thought about installing ramps. Layla saves Cade from being a hermit. But I'll let you read how. This book should be a heads up to tweak the system. Also a reminder to not assume, ask questions instead. There's no bumping and grinding; not words you don't say in front of Nana. It's a sweet story with a great set of brothers and cool extended family.

Great series. Good strong characters and well thought out story line. After reading the Honeywells of Kentucky I couldn't wait to start reading the King series.
